Hoboken crime and fire action: May 3, 2011
An ongoing list of various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day for Tuesday, May 3, 2011. This post may be updated and “bumped” periodically.
- 11:35pm: Noise Complaint
Hoboken Police are responding to City Bistro uptown for a noise complaint: “Loud music.”
- 10:35pm: Man assaults two women
In an apartment near 11th & Clinton, reports of a man who assaulted his wife and her sister. HPD was told that the women wanted to press charges against the man. However, once police arrived and sorted out the details – the story changed and no charges were pressed. Sound like that’s a recipe for a sequel, ya think?
- 7:35pm: Pedestrian Struck by Auto
A pedestrian was struck by a car at 4th & River Streets. This kind of incident is an epidemic in Hoboken…
- 7:15pm: Home Burglary
A woman who lives at 9th and Willow arrived home after work today and found out her apartment was burglarized. HPD en route to investigate.
A parked car was stuck by another car near Newark & Park. The Red 2003 Pontiac Grand Am was last seen traveling east on 1st Street
Multiple instances of agitated or irate individuals. One – at the Cake Boss Line – a woman was going nuts there, and reports of a white male, baseball cap and jeans is “agitated and violent” near 89 Adams Street, shouting profanities and tossing garbage cans in the street.
In the area of 310 Jackson St., reports of a “highly intoxicated male removing his clothes…” Just what you wanted to see after a long commute home.
9th & Garden – another car accident.
Observer & Marin Blvd. – 2 car accident, no injuries. Imagine Hoboken with 70-story high-rises lining Observer Highway?
Observer & Newark – 3 car accident, no injuries. Seriously – I can’t imagine how this happens. Then again, I walk around and observe for 15 seconds – then I realize why.
Another shoplifter apprehended at ShopRite Supermarket. This is also on the rise – and wasn’t included in the “Crime Stats” released recently. And no, Kim Kardashian wasn’t involved…
A minor accident at 2nd & Hudson – but apparently involved a pedestrian. No serious injuries – more like a “near miss.” And they said technology was supposed to advance humans… riiiiggght.
Reports of a natural gas leak at the HomeMade Pizza Company at 213 Washington St. – which is supposed to open today! Getting blown to smithereens isn’t a good way to make the Doomed Hoboken Business category here…
More updates to come…
